HEROICALLY DYNAMIC.Driving dynamics & efficiency of the BMW 5 Series Sedan.

Where dynamics are concerned, the BMW 5 Series shifts the boundaries. Powerful engines impressively transmit its sporty exterior to the road. Yet apart from power, the BMW 5 Series is not only able to offer power but also brains. This is because the progressive technologies of tomorrow which enable it to exploit its dynamics to the full make it a true hero.

 

BMW 540i Sedan:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 6.9–6.5
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 159–149

DEVELOPED TO BE BETTER.

DEVELOPED TO BE BETTER.

The BMW 5 Series is not satisfied with mediocrity. It is therefore only logical that it should be the absolute champion in its class in terms of acceleration and CO2 emissions. And also because of the Intelligent Start Stop function included for the first time. It only switches the engine off when the stop is expected to last for a certain period of time.

SAVE WEIGHT. GAIN DYNAMISM.

SAVE WEIGHT. GAIN DYNAMISM.

Thanks to more lightweight materials such as aluminium and ultra modern aluminium alloys, the BMW 5 Series of the seventh generation weighs in at up to 100 kilograms less than its predecessor. The intelligent lightweight construction also ensures a balanced weight distribution between front and rear axle as well as a lower centre of gravity. The result is highly dynamic driving characteristics.

GUIDING THE AIR. INCREASING AGILITY.

GUIDING THE AIR. INCREASING AGILITY.

In the BMW 5 Series, the BMW EfficientDynamics package of technologies is visible on a distinctive design icon: the kidney grille. When demand for cooling air is low, an air valve inside the Active Air Stream kidney grille remains closed, leading to ideal cd values as low as 0.22, which are unique in this class.

Less fuel consumption, more driving pleasure: BMW EfficientDynamics is the name of the strategy to minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while at the same time increasing dynamics and driving pleasure. The package of functions covers the drive system, energy management and vehicle concept.
